    Book Description
    Indian cooks know how to infuse vegetables, legumes, and grain dishes with appealing, intense flavors. That's one reason Indian cooking is attractive when you want to emphasize these foods in your daily diet; however, unfamiliar ingredients and cooking techniques, too much fat and dairy, and time-consuming preparation can be drawbacks to preparing these dishes. Madhu Gadia, a registered dietician, addresses these issues in Lite and Luscious Cuisine of India.

    Gadia's self-published book begins with a lesson in basic nutrition, and includes a nutritional breakdown for all 100-plus recipes. To help make Indian cooking more accessible, Gadia suggests when you can reduce preparation time by using frozen vegetables, and recommends ways to prepare and freeze key ingredients so that they will be on hand when you want them. You will recognize many dishes from restaurant menus, including Lamb Seekh Kebab and Chicken Khorma. Most interesting are the good selection of dals, rice, and vegetable dishes, all made using less fat than usual. To eliminate the stumbling block of getting the required ingredients for making many Indian dishes, the book includes an offer for ordering two kits, one that contains all the spices and seasoning blends called for in the book, and one that contains enough of the 15 beans and legumes used to make at least one recipe calling for each.--This text refers to the

    Paperback edition.
